It happens because of the hormonal changes in the body.

I've had morning sickness for a full ten weeks. It is worst an night. I looked up a bunch of remedies and thought I would pay it forward. Here is what sometimes works for me:

Don't get too hot, it makes everything worse
Take warm, not hot, showers
Try cutting out milk
No hot beverages
Eat ridiculously tiny meals all day long (ten is not a crazy number)
Stay hydrated, if water is gross add fruit (citrus, strawberries, cucumber)
Don't drink anything with your meal, it fills you up
Try to sneak in protein (hard boiled egg, nuts)
A shake will often 'stay down' and you can add protein
Freeze fruit and eat it (grapes are great frozen, bananas too)
Eat a few salty potato chips before a meal
Sip ginger "beer" (there is no alcohol) after a meal
Fruit popsicles
Pack around strongly flavored gum, mints or candies (mints, ginger, etc)
Try rice cakes if crackers get boring
Get fresh air, even if it is just sitting outside or by a window
Avoid the meat isle at the market

Things to talk to your doctor about trying:
Probiotics, like Culturelle
An enzyme pill, to help your stomach digest food
Ginger pills
Combination of low-dose Unisom and B6
Prenatal vitamins in liquid form (its a squishy pill, like vitamin E)

I'll also say that feeling crappy during pregnancy can be depressing. It can really limit your social interaction, try your patience and put a stop to typical activities like making dinner or exercise. Be especially nice to yourself. And ask for help. Your husband, parents or dear friends would happily pitch in.

Good luck ladies. Hopefully we all start feeling better soon!!

A slice of wholemeal bread always helped me to cope with morning sickness during my pregnancy.

I had morning sickness throughout my first pregnancy and the second one started the same as previous but this time I was lucky that found No to morning sickness tea that eased my sickness instantly.

Morning sickness is pretty common and is really a worse thing for the preggos. The experience is real bitter I should say. Trying eating dry cracker at night when you dent get sleep. Make your liquid intake more, ginger and peppermint tea might be helpful.
